There's a shorter hike (2.0 mi round trip) to the Lookout, coming from the North, if you're pressed for time. Take the dirt road North from the Bandy Creek campground, at SECOND fork, bear right. There's a small parking area at the terminus. NP Ranger visitor center can give you the details.

Great caves along the river walk portion if you enter from Leatherwood. Kids will love the caves!

This is a great hike with a lot of elevation change! Saw a few snakes out on the trail. Amazing views at the top and well worth the effort to make it to the top!

Nice, level trail. We will go back & make it a trail run. Stop at Bandy Creek Visitor Station & get directions. Great views especially in the winter. We were instructed to go counter clockwise however, clockwise would have saved best views for last.

This was my first hiking trail. It's more of an overlook of mountain there were few waterfalls. I actually got off the trail and walked way too far before getting back on track. It'd be an awesome view in the fall. But watch out for copperhead and rattlesnakes.

Definitely a good hike. The first 2 miles along the river winds through streams and forest and is very serene. The last mile up to the overlook is a good climb up switchbacks and around the cliff. Up on top the view of the valley and river below is fantastic! One note, there really aren't any falls to speak of. From the park rangers, someone many years ago dynamited Angel Falls in the hope of making the river navigable. What they succeeded in doing was creating some very dangerous class 4 rapids in their place. I guess they didn't have the heart to change the name and plus, who would want to go see Angel Class 4 Dangerous Rapids? :-) All in all I definitely recommend this hike.

Absolutely breathtaking! This hike was definitely in my top 5 for sure. The views are spectacular, it is peaceful and not a very difficult hike at all. I recommend for anyone that is itching for a nice hike to check this place out. Definitely worth 5 stars!
